About Tempered Glass Elgin, IL
You may have heard of tempered glass Elgin in your local news or on television, but you may not know exactly what it is. Tempered glass Elgin is a type of safety glass that is four times stronger than regular annealed glass. It is made by rapidly cooling the material to increase its strength and decrease the risk of injury in case it breaks. If tempered glass breaks, it will produce pellets rather than shards. This makes it perfect for shower doors and windows because you never have to worry about stepping on broken glass or cutting yourself on a sharp edge.
